Combat Crew is one of the best memoirs about the air war over Europe ever written.
John Comer kept a journal of the 25 missions he flew in 1943 when the casualty rate on his base was close to 80%. After each raid Comer gathered the crew together and pieced together the air battle from a 360-degree perspective. His book is handwritten history, recorded within hours after the battles occured.
